Donaldson Filtration: Improving Manufacturing Environments, the World Over
Product News Tuesday, March 12, 2019: Donaldson Filtration Systems (Pty) Ltd
Donaldson Filtration Solutions is an international concern with over 100 years of experience in filtration innovation and expertise and has been servicing the South African and global markets successfully for over 50 years. This history and extensive industry experience have contributed to Donaldson’s continued successes in increasing efficiencies for clients, their employees and providing clean air solutions for the environment.
According to Donaldson’s General Manager Industrial Air Filtration Brian Gabriel, the company has recently embarked on some new and exciting initiatives to further streamline their offerings to the market and effectively support customer expectations.
“We recently took a strategic decision to source our modular equipment directly from our international manufacturing plants, in line with our global partners. This will enable us to keep dust collectors’ ex-stock at our South African Distribution Centre offering our clients the luxury of “off the shelf supply” as opposed to the traditional “make to order” philosophy with long lead times. This now renders a harmonized approach with regards to quality expectations at global Donaldson standards.”
Donaldson has manufactured and distributed numerous cartridge type filters for various applications. Donaldson cartridge type filters have been set as an industry standard which has proven extremely effective with emission levels below 5 mg/Nm3. Inventor of the cartridge collector, Donaldson Torit® has led the way with continuous innovation, such as the award-winning Downflo® Oval dust collection technology.
“Donaldson’s new best in class Downflo® Evolution (DFE) dust collectors solve the industry’s need for better filtration, reduced operational cost, a smaller footprint and easier maintenance. Many have tried to emulate our technology, however there is only one Donaldson. Consumers need to be aware of fake offerings with no support or aftermarket as this could prove to be costly in the long run.”
Donaldson’s Ultra-Web® cartridge filters and Dura-Life® bag replacement filters are the latest innovative media formulations. Dura-Life® filter bags provide twice the life over standard 16 oz polyester bags while traditional 16 oz polyester bags are produced via a needling process that creates larger pores where dust can embed into the fabric, inhibiting cleaning and reducing bag life. Dura-Life® bags are engineered with a unique hydroentanglement process that uses water jets to blend the fibers. This process creates a felt with smaller pores which keeps more dust on the surface of the filter resulting in better pulse cleaning and longer bag life.
“From portable to central collectors and pressurization filters, Donaldson Torit® provides the most complete range of cartridge collectors that cost-effectively enhance productivity and manufacturing efficiency. We have a team of highly experienced and dedicated Sales and Application Engineers that are capable of providing customized solutions for each dust or fume application.”
Donaldson’s global reach is far and wide, serving manufacturers in Africa, North and South America, Asia Pacific and Europe. Today, the company operates more than 40 manufacturing facilities, distribution centers, subsidiaries and headquarters throughout the world.
